Dole Whip alert! Dole Whip alert! (Mental note: we need a secret, underground alert system for Dole Whip news.) Walt Disney World’s Art of Animation Resort, with its enormous Big Blue (Nemo-inspired) Pool and totally groovy theming, now has an alcoholic Dole Whip drink (and a non-alcoholic option!).
Yes, that sound you hear is us screaming with joy! To get one for yourself, you’re gonna have to make your way over to Art of Animation. You’ll know you’re there when you see massive depictions of animators’ sketches.
Yeah, those are pretty hard to miss. And who’d want to miss them? They’re awesome! Now, once you’re here, make like a shark and follow the scent of pineapple heaven (read: speed walk directly) to the Drop Off Pool Bar.
Admittedly, Captain’s Pineapple might not be the world’s most creative name for a tasty beverage, but we don’t care. Because #DoleWhip and #Rum.
You can kinda, sorta see the pre-mixed beverage machines peeking out from behind that sign, and that’s where Captain’s Pineapple swirls. It’s a premixed combo of Dole Whip (Eek!) and Captain Morgan’s Rum.
As with most pre-mixed Disney drinks, this one errs on the side of alcohol, and we aren’t complaining.
There’s plenty of tart, sweet, Dole Whip to take on the Captain. And the Dole Whip part of this cocktail equation tastes just like a Dole Whip slush.
For $10, Captain’s Pineapple is priced equivalent to most Disney Parks alcoholic beverages. But since this one is liquid Dole Whip, we think it’s a great deal.
But, hey! If you prefer your Dole Whip without a little somethin’ somethin’, Art of Animation Resort has you covered! Make your way into the Landscape of Flavors (AoA’s food court), and find the updated smoothies and frozen drinks menu.
Pineapple Paradise is described on the menu as “delicious pineapple freeze” and tastes just. like. a. Dole. Whip. slush. And it’s only $5.99. And it’s Disney Dining Plan snack credit eligible.
So, here’s the deal: the Drop Off Pool Bar has been rotating some seasonal drinks for a while now, but the Cast Member we spoke with said the Captain’s Pineapple has already been super popular. We’re hoping that this news, coupled with the Pineapple Paradise that’s available inside, means that the drinks will be available for a long time.
Cross your Dole Whip-loving fingers!!
